Presidents are required by Article Two of the Constitution to “give information to the Congress of the State” Federation, and recommend such measures for his consideration as he would do necessary and expedient justice.” Biden spoke at a joint session of Congress after entering office last year, but the comments were kept until the president’s second calendar year of union. The address is not assumed to be the state of the office I am in.

The President gives the State of the Union addresses in the House of Representatives. Members of the Senate, the President’s cabinet, and Supreme Court justices, as well as special guests from the President and others.

Pelosi invites Biden to address Congress as the White House tries to contain Covid-19 infections fueled by Omicron’s version, curb inflation and maintain an economic recovery that pushed the unemployment rate to 3.9% in December fell. Congressional Democrats will attempt to pass their Build Back Better bill in the coming weeks, which will invest in social programs and climate policy, along with voting-rights legislation.

“Thank you for your bold approach and patriotic leadership that has lifted America out of crisis and into an era of great progress, as we not only overcome the pandemic but build better!” Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote to Biden.

“Indeed, this past year has been historic: with a life-saving American rescue plan, a once a century bipartisan infrastructure law and, soon, a truly transformative Build Back Better Act!” He continued.

“In that spirit, I am writing to invite you to address a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, March 1, to share your vision of the State of the Union,” Pelosi wrote.

CNBC has reached out to the White House to request comment on the invitation.

The first two presidents, George Washington and John Adams, delivered the State of the Union in a personal address to Congress. But the third president, Thomas Jefferson, suspended that practice and gave his assessment of the state of the Union in writing.

Subsequent presidents continued Jefferson’s practice until Woodrow Wilson resumed the practice of personally addressing Congress in 1913.

President Jimmy Carter was the last president to deliver his State of the Union message in a letter to Congress. He did so shortly before President Ronald Reagan took office in 1981.
